  1. Carp, carp and more carp! I have not fought a fish that pulls as hard for as long. They smash your forearms only to reveal they are 18 inches long and 4 lbs at most. Yes, I am weak. LOVE THEM!

  2. Brown Trout and Sea bass in summer times and Sea Trout in the winter some salamon but not so fun cause of they dont like Dryflys so much :S

  3. Hope I win. It will make up for missing Tom’s podcast today! Tested one of the H2s, its a pretty sweet rod. It would be fun to test one out on some Steelhead.

  4. Fly rodding for stripers, where else are you able to catch the same fish that might weigh 2lbs to 60lbs!!!

  5. My 4 piece 6 Wt. is 25 Yrs. old this month. Now a nice new Helios in 4 Wt. would be nice. The old one still fishes great and goes with me to Montana quite regularly. Caught quite a few fall run ups on the Madison with that one.

    1. Hi there! Are you referring to Facebook friends list? The widget we use for contests (Rafflecopter) does not require you be logged into Facebook at all. If you give us some more details, hopefully we can help you out. We definitely understand your concern! Feel free to send any further thoughts to

  6. My choice was mirror carp, mainly because of the challenge. Where I live, we can catch almost all fresh water species around the Great Lakes,but the carp is the most challenging.

  7. Barbel (barbus barbus) – for the callenge and their strength. It’s affectionately called ‘the poor man’s bonefish’ to which it looks quite similar. Specimen grow up to 20lbs but commonly they average 3-6lbs. They are quite difficult to catch and fight doggedly.

  8. Hi all,

    As a European H2 lover (my H2 4 weight is my only tool on small trout streams) I have to admit: It sucks to be excluded from the sweepstakes.


    1. HI Norbert, we do apologize. Do know that this in no way reflects our desire to include other countries. The laws surrounding sweepstakes and giveaways vary by country (and state!) and are quite complex. We would love to eventually be able to legally offer all our contests to all countries – it’s about making sure we’re in keeping with each country’s laws when we do so. Stay tuned.

  9. The “Wolf Fish” aka Northern Pike. When they hit they can take your rod right out of your hand, and oh what a fighter. Must use a large arbor with plenty of backing! It is on my “to do ” list to hook a sizable pike on a fly rod. Not all rods can handle this fish but would sure like to use a Helois 2 to do the job. I’m also checking out sporting carp on a fly.

  10. I don’t often enter contests, but this is way too sweet to pass up. Hard question to answer… I said Rainbow Trout but after reading Sandy’s reply I have to agree the water wolf is a blast on the end of the rod. I can only imagine what it would be like to hook into one or the other with a Helios 2… with some luck I might not have to imagine anymore lol

  11. Please bend the corner on this electronic entry (like a raffle ticket). With all these wanting folks, I need every edge I can get!

  12. Rainbow trout as I caught them when I was growing up in California now that I moved to the East Coast (Virginia) last month I’ll have to see if I like bass or trout more!

  13. My absolute favourite are the Horsefly Strain Rainbows in the Cariboo Region of BC, Canada.
    A close second are the Northern Coho Salmon of the Bella Coola River, also in BC.
